SUPPORTING THE YOUTH IN MPIGI DISTRICT

Estimated statistics place 56% of Uganda’s youth as being under 18 years of age and many of them are recurrently confronted by a number of challenges, ranging from unemployment, low productivity and limited access to markets, to poor entrepreneurship skills, inadequate value addition facilities, among several other obstacles. These obstacles call for our intervention to bridge the gaps.

On 29.03.2019, as MP, I visited various youth groups from Kakoola and Ward 'C' Parishes in Mpigi Town Council - Mpigi District,registered their challenges and fulfilled all the pledges i made to them few years ago,namely; Motorbike,bicycle,spray pumps among others. I urged them to register all their groups as well as forming Sacco.
